Statistics show that nearly everyone experiences pain in their lower back at some point in their lives. This pain can vary from being mild to severe and it can be short-lived or long-lasting. Whatever the cause, low back pain can make everyday tasks difficult to accomplish.
Back pain treatment isn’t a “one size fits all” and varies from one person to the next. Pain can have a slow onset or come on suddenly and can be intermittent or constant. In a lot of cases, back pain resolves on its own within a few weeks.
There are a lot of different causes or reasons for back pain. It easily occurs after a specific movement while lifting or bending or from sitting at a desk all day.
In a lot of cases, age is a big factor that also plays into the condition. Aging causes degenerative changes in the spine and unfortunately, these changes can start in our 30’s — or sometimes even younger.
